God Of Mercy God Of Grace : Lyrics
1. God of mercy God of grace,
Show the brightness of Thy face;
Shine upon us, Saviour, shine,
Fill Thy Church with light divine,
And Thy saving health extend,
Unto earth’s remotest end.
2. Let the people praise Thee, Lord!
Be by all that live adored;
Let the nations shout and sing
Glory to their Saviour King,
At Thy feet their tribute pay,
And Thy holy will obey
3. Let the people praise Thee, Lord!
Earth shall then her fruits afford,
God to man His blessings give,
Man to God devoted live;
All below and all above
One in joy and light and love

Author : Henry Francis Lyte (1793 – 1847)
A Scottish hymn writer and Church of England clergyman Henry Francis Lyte MA (1793-1847) was born at Ednam, near Kelso, on the Scottish side of the English Scottish border, son of Captain Thomas Lyte. He was educated at Portora, (the Royal School of Enniskillen), and at Trinity College, Dublin, and graduated in 1814. During his university course, he distinguished himself by gaining the English prize poem on three occasions. At one time he had intended studying Medicine, but this he abandoned for Theology, and took holy orders in 1815, his first curacy being in the neighbourhood of Wexford. In 1817, he removed to Marazion in Cornwall.
From Marazion, he removed in 1819 to Lymington, where he composed his Talks on the Lord’s Prayer in verse (published in 1826). In 1823, he was appointed Perpetual Curate of Lower Brixham, Devon an appointment he held until his death in 1847.
